Take Back Public
Sent by Sharon Pawlak of the Coalition to Prevent the
Destruction of Canada Geese
A BC couple was strolling along a river when they saw four camouflaged
men in a field. A flock of Canada geese flew overhead and shots rang out.
The couple said that they, along with other outdoor users, were horrified.
They reported that some geese fell and were injured on the ground. According
to the City operations superintendent, Randy Evans, hunters are allowed on
private property if they have the owner's permission, HOWEVER, hunting
areas come up for review every year and the Ministry of Environment asks
municipalities if certain areas need to be closed. "If there is an area
that is frequented by walkers and hikers, it may be something they would
want to consider." Evans said he can understand a concern for the safety of
the public! [Such a review is sorely needed in the US as well.].
